Topic: James Bond Lifestyle Competition-WINNERS ANNOUNCED in post #184

Lights, camera, action!  Absolutely James Bond and The Zaritsky Archive bring you a photo contest where YOU are the star. Simply submit a picture or two on the associated thread of you in Bond clothes, in a Bond situation or living the Bond lifestyle.

If you haven't done so already read the full details in the Absolutely James Bond article.

First prize is Fernando Guillén Cuervo's screen used shirt from Quantum of Solace. Fernado was the Colonel of Police that betrays Mathis and Bond.

Why should you do this?

For the prizes of course!  Companies that support the Bond lifestyle have donated some wonderful prizes that will certainly enhance anyone’s collection. A small panel of judges will be judging your pictures throughout the contest. For full details on the great prizes

If you want to increase your likelihood of winning simply combine as many components into the pictures themselves. For example you in a Sunspel shirt is good but you in a Sunspel shirt by an Aston Martin is better!

As an example see our very own Quartermaster The Mantis:

As a quick example these are a couple of images of David (The Mantis) uploaded to the site so you can see what to expect.

You can click on the thumbnail images to view the larger versions. So what are you waiting for, if you have any questions ask here and David or myself will help if we can.

Once the competition has closed we will launch a poll of the best entries so you can play along with the judges and decide your winners, the forum poll will be purely for fun.

Good luck to everyone, get thinking and get photographing. ajb007/bond

great stuff

Re: James Bond Lifestyle Competition-WINNERS ANNOUNCED in post #184

It's a great contest! I'm looking forward to seeing more entrants. I'd enter myself, but unless there's a scene where James Bond is sitting behind my desk at work or doing chores around my house, I wouldn't have much chance! ajb007/crap

My recommendation is that AJB bring this competition up every once in a while...If I ever make it back to London or the Bahamas, I might be able to snap a pic or two for future contests!

Hello Fellow Bondians,

Please accept this as my formal entry for the contest.

This shot is from "Live and Let Die" and is from the beginning of the film, where Agent Hamilton (on loan to the Americans) is investigating in New Orleans.

A little about the photo...

I happened to be in NOLA last year and remembered it was a Bond location. I had no photos or DVD's to go by, only memory. I found the correct street and tried to recreate the shot from memory. I took a couple hundred pics and hoped that some would match in some way. This photo matches the best of all.

So without further adieu...

Thank you for your consideration!

First time saying anything here.

Great pictures. I want to submit a couple of my own…

Re: James Bond Lifestyle Competition-WINNERS ANNOUNCED in post #184

I know, and I am probably just being sensative because I know it is VERY hard for many people to post pictures of themselves because, let's face it, it's out of character.  And posting yourself in a Bond scenario is going out on a limb to the world since this is the internet.
